It's Coming

"A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other." - Unknown

2018 is on its way......... May all your troubles last as long as your new years resolutions!

hate what is evil
cling to what is good
love one another
do not be overcome by evil
but overcome evil with good
live in harmony, seek peace with others
rejoice with those who rejoice
mourn with those who mourn
paraphrase from Romans 12:9

lower corner is out take of his face, not another dog

Can you find Lola? She is The Watcher. We never know she is watching us, she quietly stares over the fence watching. I had to stand with tablet held high over my head snapping what I could not see to get these. Her sibling is a tiny dachshund named Louie Armstrong and Louie is not quiet. He sings at us but we can't see him.

 Watcher as title because one of my all time most favorite books is Watchers by Dean Koonz.. I bought it in 1987 . It is a sci-fi thriller with a different canine theme.  Thor by Wayne Smith is another sci-fi thriller with a family German Shepherd...
Add  Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux... and these are the only sci-fi books I have read...
and I read each of them at least 4 times. As a rule, I don't read or watch sci-fi.

Day After Christmas sale,  a gift from ME to Me.  The earrings silly, not the glass. How else could I display them in sunshine.

Did I make a pour decision? I Like bad puns and I can not lie...

Warning! Incorrigible punster! Please do not incorrige her. 

Eye am de-pendant on you for laughter.Bad puns are how EYE roll.

FOG Dec. 23, 2017

Dec. 23, 2017, 8:49 AM.....  I, better known as,  MadSnapper, stood staring out the window at the FOG thinking I am glad I don't have to drive in this. Suddenly there was a loud SNAP! and the view through the window appeared on my camera. I thought, why should I mist this photo opp

and stepped out on the front porch for a better view. I tried to catch some fog for you, but I mist.

I mist my puns, did you mist my puns?  Ginny, the palm trees are for you.

Sometimes fog puns are just plain mist-ifying! as is the MIND of a MAD snapper

Cell Phone..Holiday LEFT OVERS

I deer you to say it to my face that you are tired of cell phone pics from Walmart!!!

Frosty  can only hope the garish hat and gloves will distract you from the fact he is nude. Did I hear you say  Oh for Fox Sake stop it?

I am rich. Silver in the hair, gold in the teeth, crystals in the kidneys, sugar in the blood, lead in the butt and an inexhaustible supply of gas.....

Sorry guys, had to use up the left over pics in my phone

Christmas village at TOPS Christmas party. Stop fretting, all the holiday pics are gone now

And Heaven and Nature Sing

Snowmen by Cellphone

Decorations at TOPS Christmas party, the church we rent a room from, decorated the room, these were part of it. A village and bulletin boards and every table had a small tree. So beautiful.

I made myself a snowman as perfect as could be, I thought I'd keep it as a pet and let it sleep with me. I made it some pajamas and a pillow for its head, then last night he ran away, but first he wet the bed.  FB spice humor

Holiday Traditions

My oldest son was born in 1965, I purchased the tiptoe Santa for his first Christmas for 99 cents. Santa is 52 and son David will be 53 in Feb, other son will be 51 in Feb. Each year since they were born, this cute Santa sits somewhere in the house. This year he is standing in the starry lights in my nook.
Since 2009 my Christmas Tradition is making cards for all you blogger friends and posting HERE for you to read.

Above is my other tradition, the garland made of glass beads has been on my tree every year since 1944, my first Christmas after I married and moved out, mother gave them to me. The garland is about 3 feet long and a few of the glass beads are peeling paint and cracked but they still hang there.

Bells and  toes by accident, I laid my bells on the glass table and SNAPPED! then I took the pic into PIP CAMERA below and got rid of the toes and added bows.
After that I created the double bells at the top...

Interesting sight as  I stepped out of the restroom at Wal-Mart last week.  Bazinga! Instant Cozy Fireplace with tree and chair... zooming in....

I found my sweet friend the Wal-Mart greeter  that smiles me into the store every Saturday morning at 6:30 am. His photo was in the chair saying Santa Claus Is coming to Wal-Mart.. I love this guy, and that beard is REAL. He looks this way year round and has for many years, just minus the red suit.

Have a very beary Christmas.... Bear under the tree and heart on the tree... Just Because I could

Star Wars? or December Sky in Florida

While walking my laps around the pool, early AM on Dec. 17th, 2017, I saw the weed on the fence had turned orange. From there I could see the pines, oak grapefruit and palm trees.

Snapping away, enjoying the cool 69 degrees with bright sun, I almost missed the contrails of two planes. we are only 40 miles from Tampa Airport and McDill AFB base, 3 miles from Sarasota Bradenton Airport and 30 from 2 airports in Saint Pete. This makes contrails a common sight.

I noticed  they crossed and at times looked like a sword blast from above. . Or maybe a Star Ship blasting someone in the yard next door.

notice the trees at top and bottom, I was standing by our pool looking straight up, we are surrounded by trees
